building tubulars, looking for hub feedback
So I am going to build a set of tubulars for the upcoming 'cross season and wanted to get a little input regarding the hubs out there. I can use 130 or 135mm (I have the Uncle John frameset), but prefer the 135 - so looks like MTB hubs are the way for me.
I know Chris King is "top drawer" but I am not sure I can justify the cost of a hubset (althought who does not want the sound of angry bees chasing you???). So, XTR? XT? DT Swiss? White (trying to avoid since they have not kept up their end of a sponsorship...)
I would dig hearing some feedback on people who have used various hubs in tubular builds and how they have performed, etc.
For the record - this will be my first true season racing 'cross.
